I wrote this brief summery of how and why fluoride effects your higher brain function years ago when I was just getting into the fluoride conspiracy, and believe me it IS a conspiracy. This was back in the early 1990's when the internet was only available at Universities and libraries. It could use some brushing up and filling in a bit but all in all I think it spells out the obvious fact that fluoride is a tranquillizer



The Fluorine Group Of Organophosphates And Their Anticholinesterase Effects On The Central Nervous System

A Brief Overview By Brocke Lever

FLUORINE
It has been estimated that fluorine is ranked nineteenth in the list of elements arranged in order of relative abundance.

Whatever it's true distribution may be, it is clear that fluorine is not a scarce element. Although fluorine is widely distributed and is quite abundant, sources suitable for industrial exploitation are relatively restricted, and only three of these fluorine containing minerals are of any commercial importance. A They are listed below with their theoretical (estimated) fluorine content.

1. Cryolite - Na3 [AlF6] - 54.5% fluorine
The colourless material seemingly disappears in water due to the proximity of their refractive indices.
It was historically used as an ore of aluminium and later in the electrolytic processing of the aluminium-rich oxide ore bauxite (itself a combination of aluminium oxide minerals such as gibbsite, boehmite and diaspore).

The difficulty of separating aluminium from oxygen in the oxide ores was overcome by the use of cryolite as a flux to dissolve the oxide mineral(s). Pure cryolite itself melts at 1012 °C (1285 K), and it can dissolve the aluminium oxides sufficiently well to allow easy extraction of the aluminium by electrolysis.

Considerable energy is still required for both heating the materials and the electrolysis, but it is much more energy-efficient than melting the oxides themselves. Now, as natural cryolite is too rare to be used for this purpose, synthetic sodium aluminium fluoride is produced from the common mineral fluorite..

2. Fluorite/Fluorspar - 48.5% fluorine
Fluorite (also called fluorspar) is a halide mineral composed of calcium fluoride, CaF2. It is an isometric mineral with a cubic habit, though octahedral and more complex isometric forms are not uncommon. Crystal twinning is common and adds complexity to the observed crystal habits.

The word fluorite is derived from the Latin root fluo, meaning "to flow" because the mineral is used as a flux in iron smelting to decrease the viscosity of slags at a given temperature. This increase in fluidity is the result of the ionic nature of the mineral. The melting point of pure calcium fluoride is 1676 K.

In 1852 fluorite gave its name to the phenomenon of fluorescence, which is prominent in fluorites from certain locations, due to certain impurities in the crystal. Fluorite also gave the name to its constitutive element fluorine.

Fluorspar is used directly or indirectly to manufacture products such as aluminum, gasoline, insulating foams, refrigerants, steel, and uranium fuel. All domestic sources of fluorspar are derived from sales of material from the National Defense Stockpile and from a small amount of synthetic fluorspar produced from industrial waste streams.   Byproduct fluorosilicic acid production from some phosphoric acid producers supplements fluorspar as a domestic source of fluorine, but is not included in fluorspar production or consumption calculations.

3. Fluorapatite - Ca5(PO4)3F - 3.8% fluorine
Industrially, the mineral is an important source of both phosphoric and hydrofluoric acids. Fluorapatite as a mineral is the most common phosphate mineral. It occurs widely as an accessory mineral in igneous rocks and in calcium rich metamorphic rocks. It commonly occurs as a detrital or diagenic mineral in sedimentary rocks and is an essential component of phosphorite ore deposits. It occurs as a residual mineral in lateritic soils.

Fluorapatite as a naturally occurring impurity in apatite generates hyrodrogen fluoride as a byproduct during the production of phosphoric acid, as apatite is digested by sulfuric acid. The hydrogen fluoride byproduct is now one of the industrial sources of hydrofluoric acid, which in turn is used as a starting reagent for synthesis of a range of important industrial and pharmaceutical fluorine compounds.
The element Fluorine is more abundant than chlorine.

Fluorine was first isolated in 1886 by French chemist Henri Moissan.
However, in 1813 Sir Humphry Davy had recognized the presence of a new element in crude preparations of hydrofluoric acid which had been available since 1771.

Fluorine is the most chemically reactive of all the elements and combines directly at ordinary or elevated temperatures with all elements other than oxygen, helium, neon and krypton, often with extreme vigor. It also attacks many other compounds, breaking them down to fluorides.

FLUORSPAR
Fluorspar is by far the most important industrial source of fluorine.
Workable deposits are found all over the world. In Australia, China, Korea, the Former Soviet Union, South Africa, Tunisia, Morocco, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, The United Kingdom, Argentina, Canada and The United states.

 
INORGANIC COMPOUNDS OF FLUORINE
All inorganic fluorine compounds which have an appreciable solubility in water and are toxic when ingested in quite squall quantities. Thus, such substances as sodium fluoride and sodium silicofluoride are very poisonous, less than 1.0 gram of the former constitutes a fatal dose in adults.

All Inorganic compounds of fluorine have been / or are used extensively in industry for:

     •   Metal fluxes
     •   Wood preservatives
     •   Frosting glass
     •   Lead and tin plating
     •   Aluminum production
     •   Ceramics production
     •   Water Fluoridation
     •   Non-stick cooking surfaces (Teflon)
     •   Aerosol propellants
     •   Isolating uranium isotopes, Nuclear reprocessing (separating the components of spent nuclear fuel)
     •   An oxidizing agent in rocket fuel
     •   Chemical warfare agents
     •   Insecticides
     •   Toothpaste additives
     •   General anesthetics
     •   Anxiolytic, hypnotic and narcoleptic sedatives

Of all its possible uses fluorine has the most fascinating and possibly the most complicated use in anesthetics and tranquilizers.

 
FLUORINE COMPOUNDS AS ANTICHOLINESTERASES AGENTS



ACETYLCHOLINE
Acetylcholine is one of the fifteen major neurotransmitters and was one of the first neurotransmitters to be identified by science and was discovered back in 1914.

It is the chemical transmitter of nerve impulses at:
1. The synapses in all autonomic ganglia, both sympathetic and parasympathetic and the endings of the preganglionic sympathetic fibers in the adrenal medulla,
2. All postganglionic parasylnpathetic nerve endings',
3. Postganglionic sympathetic nerve endings in the uterus and sweat glands',
4. The end-plates of the motor nerves to the striated muscled. Put simply it chemically transmits nerve impulses in the brain and throughout the body.

ACETYLCHOLINESTERASE
Once acetylcholine has done its job transporting the nerve impulse that impulse must be deactivated or 'switched off'. This job is done acetylcholinesterase which hydrolyses or "breaks down" acetylcholine to choline and acetate. The choline can then be taken back up into the presynaptic neurone, and there it is used to synthesize new acetylcholine.

ANTICHOLINESTERASES
Drugs which either reversibly or irreversibly inhibit the enzynze acetylcholinesterase, and thus delay the destruction of released acetylcholine, are called anticholinesterases.

Anticholinesterases will inhibit acetylcholinesterase at any site to which they can gain access, and they will potentiate the effects of acetylcholine at all parasympathetically innervated structures, and at nicotinic receptors in autonomic ganglia and skeletal muscle. Actions on the central nervous systems are a mixture of stimulant and depressant actions.

Put simply, anticholincsterases short circut the central nervous system.

Organophosphate anticholinesterases constitute or class of long-lasting (irreversible) anticholinesterase compounds. These compounds have been mainly used for insecticides, potential agents of warfare (chemical weapons i.e. nerve gas), anesthetics, tranquillizers and the fluoridation of public water supplies.

Fluoride (sodium fluoride, sodium silicofluoride and hydrofluoric acid) and a large number of other inorganic fluorine compounds are classed as organophosphate anticholinesterases.


ANXIOLYTIC SEDATIVES, HYPNOTICS AND NEUROLEPTICS

An anxiolytic (also antipanic or antianxiety agent) is a drug used for the treatment of anxiety and its related psychological and physical symptoms. Anxiolytics have been shown to be useful in the treatment of anxiety disorders. Beta-receptor blockers such as propranolol and oxprenolol, although not anxiolytics, can be used to combat the somatic symptoms of anxiety. Anxiolytics are also known as minor tranquilizers. The term is less common in modern texts, and was originally derived from a dichotomy with major tranquilizers, also known as neuroleptics or antipsychotics.

A Hypnotic (also called soporific) drugs are a class of psychoactives whose primary function is to induce sleep and to be used in the treatment of insomnia, and in surgical anesthesia. When used in anesthesia to produce and maintain unconsciousness, "sleep" is metaphorical as there are no regular sleep stages or cyclical natural states; patients rarely recover from anesthesia feeling refreshed and with renewed energy. Because drugs in this class generally produce dose-dependent effects, ranging from anxiolysis to production of unconsciousness, they are often referred to collectively as sedative-hypnotic drugs. Hypnotic drugs are regularly prescribed for insomnia and other sleep disorders, with over 95% of insomnia patients being prescribed hypnotics in some countries. Many hypnotic drugs are habit-forming and, due to a large number of factors known to disturb the human sleep pattern, a physician may instead recommend alternative sleeping patterns, sleep hygiene, and exercise, before prescribing medication for sleep. Hypnotic medication when prescribed should be used for the shortest period of time possible.

An antipsychotic (or neuroleptic) is a psychiatric medication primarily used to manage psychosis (including delusions or hallucinations, as well as disordered thought), particularly in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and is increasingly being used in the management of non-psychotic disorders (ATC code N05A). A first generation of antipsychotics, known as typical antipsychotics, was discovered in the 1950s. Most of the drugs in the second generation, known as atypical antipsychotics, have been developed more recently, although the first atypical antipsychotic, clozapine, was discovered in the 1950s and introduced clinically in the 1970s. Both generations of medication tend to block receptors in the brain's dopamine pathways, but antipsychotic drugs encompass a wide range of receptor targets.

A number of harmful and undesired (adverse) effects have been observed, including lowered life expectancy, extrapyramidal effects on motor control – including akathisia (an inability to sit still), trembling, and muscle weakness, weight gain, decrease in brain volume, enlarged breasts (gynecomastia) in men and milk discharge in men and women (galactorrhea due to hyperprolactinaemia), lowered white blood cell count (agranulocytosis), involuntary repetitive body movements (tardive dyskinesia), diabetes, and sexual dysfunction.

A return of psychosis can occur, requiring increasing the dosage, due to cells producing more neurochemicals to compensate for the drugs (tardive psychosis), and there is a potential for permanent chemical dependence leading to psychosis worse than before treatment began, if the drug dosage is ever lowered or stopped (tardive dysphrenia).[1] Most side-effects disappear rapidly once the medication is discontinued or reduced, but others, particularly tardive dyskinesia, may be irreversible.

Temporary withdrawal symptoms including insomnia, agitation, psychosis, and motor disorders may occur during dosage reduction of antipsychotics, and can be mistaken for a return of the underlying condition.


FLUORINE AS A DRUG

Due to its anticholinesterase properties fluorine is part of many sedative agents used in the management of anxiety and neurosis (anxiolytic sedatives or minor tranquillizers), as well as those used to produce sleep (hypnotics), and agents used in the treatment of psychoses (antipsychotic agents). The term narcoleptic agent is sometimes used to describe those antipsychotic agents that have effects on the extrapyramidal systems.

Antipsychotic agents are sometimes described as major tranquillizers.

The fluoride in your water is a "major tranquillizer". You are being tranquillized. Slowly but surely you are being tranquillized.

Great info -

These nerve toxins are used in flea and tick control preparations such as Frontline etc in sprays and ’spot on’ treatments which vets push on unsuspecting pet owners for bread n' butter money. If only the following were true


Mercks Veterinary Manual says

‘’ these compounds were once very popular for their potency and prolonged action but their use is declining because their systemic persistence creates a low margin of safety and continued use leads to toxicity’’
